Wow , I guess your co-worker is ignoring all the long vaccination lines full of old people? Oh, but the conspiracy then changes to: "They are giving placebos to the old people!" Sheesh.Heard a new conspiracy today from a co-worker: “Adolf” Cuomo is denying vaccines if you’re 80+ to weed out the older population. He said his doctor told him that. Our society is so screwed.
I appreciate the notion that “all men are created equal” and all that, but what happens after, when minds are formed and poisoned? When and how does one lose their humanity?Heard a new conspiracy today from a co-worker: “Adolf” Cuomo is denying vaccines if you’re 80+ to weed out the older population.

He turned 80 last year, so he's aware. We don't have lines here in NYS, you have to register online and appointment availability is almost nonexistent which provides part of the basis for this lie to persist.Wow , I guess your co-worker is ignoring all the long vaccination lines full of old people?

I would recommend you talk with his Dr. There are several different sets of guidelines and it's very individualized what does or does not need to be checked. One fairly universal guideline is that everyone with COVID should not do sports or significant exercise until 2 weeks asymptomatic (so at least 2 weeks from diagnosis for those who are asymptomatic). That is the minimum and in some cases it needs to be longer. I'm surprised your school did not require a Dr. visit and a note clearing for return to sports, that is generally what is being requested here.@Anne Where would I go to find out more about the cardiac screening for children post-COVID? My 17yo was asymptotic positive on 12/17, and started up intense pre-season soccer workouts 1/4 (supervised by the HS athletic department) plus his own cardio and weight training. I honestly had not considered this, but now am concerned about putting him in harms way.
I'm having a hard time with this in the media. The issue has been primarily with medical assistants and nursing assistants in nursing homes and assisted care facilities refusing vaccines, especially being reported in NYS. The headlines feel misleading. "medical professionals" gives more validity to the position and I think makes people question "Am I missing something here, do doctors know something about safety that we're not being told?" But it's not the Doctors refusing for the most part, it's people who have a 6-12 month post HS diploma from a technical school.Sadly, I think the anti-vax circle is actually larger than the anti-mask one. I know people who are happy to wear masks, but very hesitant to get the vaccine. This includes medical professionals, SMH.
I don’t know, I’ve been wondering about running events too. I wouldn’t mind doing a virtual since I have a running buddy I’ve been running with for years, but without an actual race, it’s hard to find motivation to really increase our mileage above our “usual.”How likely do people think there will be a Wine and Dine runDisney event this fall? Do you think that will be a situation where they will require runners to have a health passport with either vaccine, recent negative test, or proof of a positive COVID test in the last 90 days? Or do you think they are going to decide, why make people angry with the health passport thing (I think it's really unlikely they would do this for general park admission), we can rake in $ from virtual events until we can go back to our regular race plans in 2022?
Knowing Disney, you'd be SOL. I think they'd really want to avoid that, though.
This is helpful information. It's essentially what I've been doing since I was diagnosed with Covid based on what I've read (there was a good NYT article that urged caution), but I've felt like I'm giving myself too much leeway not to get back to exercising. Since my symptoms subsided I've been walking but not letting myself run. I'll also do an easy stationary spin on my bike but no intervals. I've already written off my March triathlon (which I was only registered for because of a deferral from last March), but it's hard to discard the "no pain no gain" mentality that pervades so much of endurance sports.One fairly universal guideline is that everyone with COVID should not do sports or significant exercise until 2 weeks asymptomatic
In one sense I completely understand this. But perhaps we should not be surprised. There has been a lot of effort poured into discrediting governmental expertise and competence generally and vaccines specifically. Now think of all the energy some have put into minimizing the seriousness of C19, plus the implied messaging from many in power that no one should have to sacrifice even minimally for someone else---particularly if that someone else is already "unhealthy."I'm still completely appalled that anyone is refusing the vaccine.
I suspect this is unlikely. Hawaii has had a devil of a time getting this implemented for their inbound quarantine program, and that's a State government with its own public health office. Disney is its own government---at least in Florida---but it may not be at that level yet.Do you think that will be a situation where they will require runners to have a health passport with either vaccine, recent negative test, or proof of a positive COVID test in the last 90 days?
Are there any conversations being had yet about what this looks like? Is it as "simple" as National Guard medics setting up in a parking lot and doing a drive-through mass clinic, or something else?I think federal mass vaccine clinics are going to be essential in under-served areas.
At the very least, they need to track who is getting the shot, set up a future appointment/reminder system for dose 2, and handle the logistics of supply and staffing for people coming in for dose 2.Are there any conversations being had yet about what this looks like?
